Thanks guys. I drove it to work today and parked in the the lot outside. People I work with kept telling me "There are more people taking pictures of your car."

Years ago, when I drove it to work , one day I came out and some German tourists were sitting in it, taking pictures of each other. I asked them what they were doing, and they said "Oh, we are just taking pictures !" I guess in Germany cars are public property.

Tonight my Son Dan and I are taking our two rods to Ft Myers Beach for dinner. That is always fun, lots of cell phones flashing pictures and questions from people. Now I know how Kim Kardashian feels. (well, I don't know how she actually FEELS............uh, you get the point. )

I can't tell from the photos, what engine is that? Ford?
Nevermind, I see now that it's a SBF.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Sounds like a great plan for your evening, Don!

If you get a chance, get some pictures of the two together for us! I also don't know how Kim feels... But I can venture a guess.

Personally, I don't care how Kim feels, but if ya grow an azz as big as hers, you won't fit in that roadster....

I thought my old front axle was a 4 inch but this new one did drop it down a little lower. Last night I noticed my headlights were shining right in front of me, so I have to adjust them up a little more.

Talking worry

don't worry, as we get older most of us drop a little and need our "headlights" adjusted, happens to the best of us
